CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my studio.
This sterling silver pendant is etched with a Celtic pattern depicting two birds, swans, with intertwined necks. Its name Etn means "bird" in old Breton, refers to these Celtic birds.
In Celtic mythology, birds usually are considered messengers of Sidh (or sid) of the "other world." But the Celtic beliefs allow a larger role for swan. It is a sacred animal, a symbol of the sun and the moon by its whiteness. It is a messenger from the other world; maybe a deceased person who adopted this form. This is often the form taken by the Celtic goddesses to visit people and communicate with them.
It is artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas relief effect is really nice. The deeper part is oxidized and the upper part has been sanded and polished.
Etching is an artisanal process, which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
Height: 1.18 inch (3.7 cm).
